Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - The New Mexico State baseball team took on Western Athletic Conference opponent Sacramento State in game two of a three-game series on Friday night at Presley Askew Field. An early barrage of runs from the Hornets put the Aggies in an early hole that they were not able to climb out of as they fell, 7-3.

Friday night’s matchup saw NM State (16-11, 3-2 WAC) starter Justin Dehn take on Sacramento State (10-14, 1-1 WAC) ace Parker Brahms. Each team got a runner in scoring position in the opening frame but failed to cross the plate.

Then the Hornets struck first in the top of the second. Following a batter being plunked, Sac State had runners on first and second with two outs. During the next at-bat an attempted steal of third base saw a throw go errant which allowed both runners to score and the Aggies trailed 2-0.  Continue Reading This Post >>
